Lyrics:Only a palace with interior doors
Well painted well gargoyled with multiple floors
Two
windows let free this projector machine
and the magical world here appears on the screen

My servants attend me with tricks of the senses
The past and the future and similar
tenses
and on platters of air they convey me my measure
both gladness and sorrow, I
lack not for treasure

The lord and his lady are seated within
In the court of
the mind where the song does begin
The song is as fine is as fine is as follows
The
song does continue through measureless hollows
that sink from the level of personal being

through caverns of darkness where dragons
are dwelling

The mountains
above them are raised at my calling
Where the apples are ripe or the rain is a-falling


In ships of white vision I sail the horizon
where three spinners stand beyond the

horizon under the tree of the apples of beauty
I watch them arranging my days and
tomorrows
The song is as fine is as fine as it follows

I stood on the beach
where the moon was a-curling
Laughed on the wings of the sea birds calling
I loved
when sweet Venus a lover did bring me
I cried when sweet Saturn and Jupiter moved us

and all of my servants were fighting their brothers
And the lord and the lady they hated each
other
Till the spinners arose with their work on their fingers
Commanding the presence
of Heavenly singers
That spoke of the silence so soon to be coming
When all would be
still in the wonderful palace
The peace is not stillness but peacefully changing
This
hope is the hope of the man on the gallows
The song is as fine is as fine is as follows


The infant I was in the womb of my mother
White sperm I was in the loins of my
father
Before that I swam in the oceans of nowhere
Where the fish are as fine as the
colour of colours
Where waves are the message of centuries rolling
Where wind is the
breath of the Holy Creator
Where no ship sails but only the ocean
Where all the rivers
grow mighty with showing
And crowned with the gifts of the myriad valleys
Return with
a sigh to the sea of the coming
Forever and ever and ever and ever be glad O be
Glad
for the song has no ending
